$9,214 For AOL 1.0 Startup Disk

With the passing of time, both the dawn and the golden age of the internet are both long since things of the past. Much like the expiration of early automobiles, collectors have found outrageous value in clinging to the past, and AOL startup discs are no exception. This week, Todd Farmer of West Chester, PA, sold his mint-condition AOL 1.0 startup disc for over $9,000 in an online auction.

Todd Farmer knew he was sitting on gold, but he'd been sitting on it a good long time.

Mr. Farmer explains, "that disc served me well. It's a 5 1/2" floppy, double-sided, double-density with all the original packaging. This bad boy wasn't free for me or anybody back then, so I wasn't about to throw it away."

Mrs. Farmer sings as different a tune as the contrarian ballad she's always harped. "He's had that stupid thing framed and hanging in the front room ever since before I knew him, and we've been married eight years. I kept trying to sneak it in to the trash, but he kept fishing it back out. I guess the last laugh's on me, we're going to Hawaii now."

Your post says 5 1/2" disk... but your picture is a 3 1/2" disk. I don't suppose it was a 5 1/4" was it?

Daniela Mann said...

Hey Shawn I have an original good condition NetManage chameleon sampler from 12 jan 1995 that includes all cool programs like ftp, telnet, etc… Maybe I’ll sell it so I can go to Hawaii too.

Mind_nl said...

Who the hell would pay 9 grand for an old disk, that has nothing usable on it.
Makes me wonder how much cash I put in the trash on my last move. I had a couple of moving boxes full of old disks and hardware, maybe I should have put those on flea-bay...

solisy said...

How can you spend $9K for something like this? Some people really don't know what to do with their money? Guys should start using reverse auctions if they want old stuff like that. http://www.oltiby.com

$9,000 for an AOL Disk... I wonder if the company can start shelling those out on Ebay to help them pay their electric bill next month?

At least for their Dial Up Dept.

kalyok said...

Lie! I've searched completed listings on eBay for 'AOL 1.0' and there is no such auction for $9,214.00! Provе if it's true! Give the item #, please!

Anonymous said...

This is stupid. I'm sure people still have Q-Link, AppleLink, and PC-Link disks hanging around. This is what the service was called pre-1989.

ProfitSecrets said...

Thats amazing, I've probably thrown out a dozen of these after moving so many times. Its amazing that you got so much for it. But why would anyone pay that much for it?

Anonymous said...

pls i need some thpse item ,i have tring to write you but my ip is bad

DiggIt said...

That's about as dumb as paying 10k for a 10 year old, partially eat grilled cheese sandwich, just because it bears the likeness of the Virgin Mary. Oh wait, that really happened too.

reverse auction said...

I have this same disk, wow!
EBAY here I come!

Dude, I still have some of those Original Windows 95 CD still in the plastic wrapping? Got to try my luck with this. Thanks for the heads up.

Bugs said...

sweet i too will get as i have few disks :P

Hey I've got a 5 "1/2 floppy disc driver but the plug tip is missing.
Might be worth hanging onto then.

xInd.ca said...

LOL. That's insane. I know I've got some stuff like that kicking around. I think it's time to dust off the old e-bay hat and get some auctions up there.

If it is assume that my floppy drive can be sell and $XXX, Not bad.

Bump Auction said...

Flynn, our hero, is writing a novel on the side about the grocery store. He frequently breaks out his Moleskine to talk about it. Weirder things begin happening — people and things appear and disappear, and Flynn starts having panic attacks, culminating in a reality-disrupting end that I won’t spoil here. That’s Part One. download lagu Disappointingly, the twist is not difficult to figure out, and it’s particularly easy to piece together if you read the summary printed on the back of the book beforehand.
